On Friday, July 31, 2015, SAS® chief data scientist, Wayne Thompson, and senior product manager for data management, Mike Frost, will brief BBBT on adding Hadoop to your big data mix.

SAS provides everything you need to derive valuable insights from all that data. Extensive data management – because prepping data is hugely time consuming. Visual data discovery. In-memory processing. Sophisticated analytics. And the ability to quickly deploy the models that provide the best answers.

“Many organizations look to Hadoop as their data lake architecture to help store and manage the waves of new data flowing into their data centers. The new data includes social, text and sources as diverse as device sensors," said Mike Frost. "SAS offers integrated data preparation, visualization, and analysis solutions that turn Hadoop data directly into knowledge. Organizations use SAS to turn data lakes into reservoirs of insight, and quickly go from possibilities to opportunities.”

“Hadoop has become the darling of the Big Data crowd. However, without a way of prepping it, discovering what’s of value, and analyzing it in depth, it is just a massive volume of data,” said BBBT Founder, Claudia Imhoff. “SAS amazes me in its continuous innovation, deep data management capabilities, and remarkable visualization and analytical functions. SAS and Hadoop together form a formidable combination.”

A podcast summarizing the presentation will be available at the BBBT podcasts page and a video of the presentation will be available at the BBBT videos page.
